EPC adds 16 churches in 2016-17


Sixteen churches joined the EPC in the reporting period of May 28, 2016, through May 22, 2017, bringing the roster of EPC congregations to 602 as of June 21, 2017. Fourteen of the new EPC churches were previous congregations of the Presbyterian Church (USA); one was independent; and one was newly organized.

John Graham, Moderator of the 20th EPC General Assembly, prayed for the new churches.

“Let us who came before embrace our new brothers as important parts of our body,” he said, “and from whom we will all learn and grow.”
